Conor Brady's Joe Swallow leads an "interesting" life. Besides the art classes mentioned in the reviews, there's keeping his sister out of trouble as she explores psychic powers with "Willie" Yeats, the new science of finger printing introduced by medical examiner Harry LeFeyre, solving several murders and also a government scandal to be kept under wraps. This was not a boring book. The writing paints the picture of the times and gives life to the author's deep knowledge of Dublin and police in 1887. The plot is revealed skillfully through thorough police work and knowledge of human nature working with and against one another, particularly his boss, John Mallon, who knows everything that's going on and how to utilize the talents of each of his G-men.
